Why do you need an RG146 accreditation?

Current Federal legislation requires that an accountant holds an RG146 certification should they wish to advise clients on Superannuation, SMSF’s or any other financial products.

To provide clients with advice or recommendations on SMSF’s, accountants must obtain minimum RG146 certification. Without it, you will not be able to become authorised under a licence to advise your clients.

What do I need to do after I receive my Certificate of RG146 Compliance?

Once you are issued with your Certificate of RG146 Compliance and before you can start providing advice to clients on SMSF’s, contributions, pension, etc. ASIC and Corporations legislation require that you first be appointed as an Authorised Representative of an Australian Financial Services Licence (AFSL).

An AFSL is an entity that has been approved by ASIC to be a provider of SMSF and financial product advice to the public and is subject to audit on a yearly basis.

An AFSL is approved by ASIC to appoint RG146 qualified individuals as Authorised Representatives of the licence. This allows those individuals to advise clients on SMSF’s and financial services.

The AFSL is required to audit the individuals on a yearly basis and monitor them to ensure their continuing compliance with legislation.

Accountable Financial Solutions holds an AFSL (No. 409424) that is open to accountants and accounting practices only, allowing them to provide advice to clients on SMSF’s and other financial matters.
